Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Support


NOTE
Computer systems that have an unshielded cable attached to a USB port might not
meet FCC Class B requirements, even if no device or a low-speed USB device is
attached to the cable. Use a shielded cable that meets the requirements for a full-
speed USB device.

The desktop board supports up to eight USB 2.0 ports via ICH7 (four ports routed to
the back panel and four ports routed to two internal USB 2.0 headers). USB 2.0 ports
are backward compatible with USB 1.1 devices. USB 1.1 devices will function normally
at USB 1.1 speeds.
USB 2.0 support requires both an operating system and drivers that fully support
USB 2.0 transfer rates. Disabling Hi-Speed USB in the BIOS reverts all USB 2.0 ports
to USB 1.1 operation. This may be required to accommodate operating systems that
do not support USB 2.0.

16
Desktop Board Features

Enhanced IDE Interface


The desktop board’s IDE interface handles the exchange of information between the
processor and peripheral devices such as hard disk drives and CD-ROM drives. The
interface supports:
• Up to two IDE devices (such as hard drives)
• ATAPI-style devices (such as CD-ROM drives)
• Older PIO Mode devices
• Ultra DMA-33 and ATA-66/100 protocols

Serial ATA
The desktop board supports four Serial ATA channels (3.0 Gb/s) via ICH7, connecting
one device per channel.

Expandability
For system expansion, the desktop board provides the following:
• One PCI Express x16 connector
• One PCI Express x1 connector
• Two PCI bus connectors

BIOS
The BIOS provides the Power-On Self-Test (POST), the BIOS Setup program, the
PCI/PCI Express and IDE auto-configuration utilities, and the video BIOS. The BIOS is
stored in a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) Flash device.
The BIOS can be updated by following the instructions on page 56 in Chapter 3.

Serial ATA and IDE Auto Configuration


If you install a Serial ATA or IDE device (such as a hard drive) in your computer, the
auto-configuration utility in the BIOS automatically detects and configures the device
for your computer. You do not need to run the BIOS Setup program after installing a
Serial ATA or IDE device. You can override the auto-configuration options by
specifying manual configuration in the BIOS Setup program.

17
Intel Desktop Board D946GZIS Product Guide

PCI and PCI Express* Auto Configuration


If you install a PCI/PCI Express add-in card in your computer, the PCI/PCI Express
auto-configuration utility in the BIOS automatically detects and configures the
resources (IRQs, DMA channels, and I/O space) for that add-in card. You do not need
to run the BIOS Setup program after you install a PCI/PCI Express add-in card.

Security Passwords
The BIOS includes security features that restrict whether the BIOS Setup program can
be accessed and who can boot the computer. A supervisor password and a user
password can be set for the BIOS Setup and for booting the computer, with the
following restrictions:
• The supervisor password gives unrestricted access to view and change all Setup
options. If only the supervisor password is set, pressing <Enter> at the password
prompt of Setup gives the user restricted access to Setup.
• If both the supervisor and user passwords are set, you must enter either the
supervisor password or the user password to access Setup. Setup options are then
available for viewing and changing depending on whether the supervisor or user
password was entered.
• Setting a user password restricts who can boot the computer. The password
prompt is displayed before the computer is booted. If only the supervisor
password is set, the computer boots without asking for a password. If both
passwords are set, you can enter either password to boot the computer.

For instructions on resetting the password, see Clearing Passwords on page 50.

Hardware Management Features


The hardware management features of Desktop Board D946GZIS enable the board to
be compatible with the Wired for Management (WfM) specification. The board has
several hardware management features including the following:
• Fan speed monitoring and control
• Thermal and voltage monitoring
• Chassis intrusion detection

Hardware Monitoring and Fan Speed Control


The features of the hardware monitoring and fan speed control include:
• Monitoring of power supply voltages to detect levels above and below acceptable
values
• Intel® Precision Cooling Technology
• Thermal sensors in the processor, GMCH, and ICH7 plus an onboard remote sensor
• Thermally monitored closed-loop fan control, for all onboard fans, that can adjust
fan speed or switch the fans off as needed

18
Desktop Board Features

Chassis Intrusion Detection


The board supports a chassis security feature that detects if the chassis cover has
been removed. The security feature uses a mechanical switch on the chassis that can
be connected to the chassis intrusion header on the desktop board. See Figure 24 on
page 47 for the location of the chassis intrusion header.

Power Management Features


Power management is implemented at several levels, including:
• Software support through the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI)
• Hardware support:
― Power connectors
― Fan headers
― LAN wake capabilities
― Instantly Available PC technology (Suspend to RAM)
― +5 V standby power indicator LED
― Wake from USB
― Wake from PS/2 keyboard/mouse
― Power Management Event signal (PME#) wakeup support
― WAKE# signal wake-up support

ACPI
ACPI gives the operating system direct control over the power management and Plug
and Play functions of a computer. The use of ACPI with the desktop board requires an
operating system that provides full ACPI support.

Power Connectors
ATX12V-compliant power supplies can turn off the computer power through system
control. When an ACPI-enabled computer receives the correct command, the power
supply removes all non-standby voltages.
When resuming from an AC power failure, the computer returns to the power state it
was in before power was interrupted (either on or off). The computer’s response can
be set by using the Last Power State feature in the BIOS Setup program’s Boot menu.
The desktop board has two power connectors. See Figure 23 on page 46 for the
location of the power connectors.

19
Intel Desktop Board D946GZIS Product Guide

Fan Headers
The function/operation of the fans is as follows:
• The fans are on when the computer is in the ACPI S0 state.
• The fans are off when the computer is in the ACPI S3, S4, or S5 state.
• Each fan header is wired to a tachometer input of the hardware monitoring and
control device.
• All fan headers support closed-loop fan control that can adjust the fan speed or
switch the fan on or off as needed.
• All fan headers have a +12 V dc connection.
The desktop board has a 4-pin processor fan header and two 3-pin chassis fan

LAN Wake Capabilities

CAUTION
For LAN wake capabilities, the 5 V standby line for the power supply must be capable
of delivering adequate +5 V standby current. Failure to provide adequate standby
current when using this feature can damage the power supply.
LAN wakeup capabilities enable remote wake-up of the computer through a network.
The LAN subsystem monitors network traffic and upon detecting a Magic Packet*
frame, it asserts a wake-up signal that powers up the computer.

Instantly Available PC Technology

CAUTIONS
For Instantly Available PC technology, the 5 V standby line for the power supply must
be capable of delivering adequate +5 V standby current. Failure to provide adequate
standby current when using this feature can damage the power supply and/or effect
ACPI S3 sleep state functionality.
Power supplies used with this desktop board must be able to provide enough standby
current to support the standard Instantly Available (ACPI S3 sleep state) configuration.
If the standby current necessary to support multiple wake events from the PCI and/or
USB buses exceeds power supply capacity, the desktop board may lose register
settings stored in memory.

Instantly Available PC technology enables the board to enter the ACPI S3 (Suspend-to-
RAM) sleep state. While in the S3 sleep state, the computer will appear to be off. If
the computer has a dual-colored power LED on the front panel, the sleep state is
indicated by the LED turning amber. When signaled by a wake-up device or event, the
computer quickly returns to its last known awake state.

20
Desktop Board Features

The desktop board supports the PCI Bus Power Management Interface Specification.
Add-in cards that support this specification can participate in power management and
can be used to wake the computer.

+5 V Standby Power Indicator LED

CAUTION
If the AC power has been switched off and the standby power indicator is still lit,
disconnect the power cord before installing or removing any devices connected to the
board. Failure to do so could damage the board and any attached devices.

The desktop board’s standby power indicator, shown in Figure 3, is lit when there is
standby power still present on the board even when the computer appears to be off.
For example, when this LED is lit, standby power is still present at the memory module
sockets and the PCI bus connectors.

3 Updating the BIOS
The BIOS Setup program can be used to view and change the BIOS settings for the
computer. You can access the BIOS Setup program by pressing the <F2> key after
the Power-On Self-Test (POST) memory test begins and before the operating system
boot begins.
This chapter tells you how to update the BIOS by either using the Intel Express BIOS
Update utility or the Iflash Memory Update utility, and how to recover the BIOS if an
update fails.

Updating the BIOS with the Intel® Express


BIOS Update Utility
With the Intel Express BIOS Update utility you can update the system BIOS while in
the Windows environment. The BIOS file is included in an automated update utility
that combines the functionality of the Intel® Flash Memory Update Utility and the ease
of use of Windows-based installation wizards.
To update the BIOS with the Intel Express BIOS Update utility:
1. Go to the Intel World Wide Web site:
http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/
2. Navigate to the D946GZIS page, click “[view] Latest BIOS updates,” and select the
Express BIOS Update utility file.
3. Download the file to your hard drive. (You can also save this file to a removable
USB device. This is useful if you are updating the BIOS for multiple identical
systems.)
4. Close all other applications. This step is required. Your system will be rebooted at
the last Express BIOS Update window.
5. Double-click the executable file from the location on your hard drive where it was
saved. This runs the update program.
6. Follow the instructions provided in the dialog boxes to complete the BIOS update.

57
Intel Desktop Board D946GZIS Product Guide

Updating the BIOS with the ISO Image BIOS


Update File or the Iflash Memory Update
Utility
You can use the information in this section to update the BIOS using either the Iflash
Memory Update Utility or the ISO Image BIOS update file.

Obtaining the BIOS Update File


You can update to a new version of the BIOS by using the ISO Image BIOS update file
(recommended), or Iflash BIOS update file.
The ISO Image BIOS update file is a standardized image of a bootable CD-ROM that
can be used to create a bootable CD that will update the BIOS.
The IFlash BIOS update file is a compressed file that contains the files you need to
update the BIOS. The IFlash BIOS update file contains:
• New BIOS file (including the Intel® Management Engine Firmware Image)
• Intel® Integrator Toolkit Configuration File (optional)
• Intel Flash Memory Update Utility
You can obtain either of these files files through your computer supplier or by
navigating to the Desktop Board D946GZIS page on the Intel World Wide Web site at:
http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop
Navigate to the DZ946GZIS page, click “[view] Latest BIOS updates,” and select the ISO
Image BIOS Update or Iflash BIOS Update utility file.

Updating the BIOS with the ISO Image BIOS Update


File
The ISO Image BIOS update allows for the update of an Intel® Desktop Board BIOS to
the latest production release regardless of the operating system installed on the
computer's hard drive and without the need to remove the BIOS configuration jumper.
It requires a blank CD-R, a read/writeable CD drive, and software capable of
uncompressing and writing the ISO image file to CD.
The image uses ISOLINUX* bootloader and automatically launches a script to upgrade
the BIOS via the Iflash utility.

CAUTION
Do not interrupt the process or the system may not function properly.

58
Updating the BIOS

Follow these instructions to upgrade the BIOS using the ISO Image BIOS file:
1. Download the ISO Image BIOS file.
2. Using software capable of uncompressing and writing an ISO image file to CD, burn
the data to a blank CD.

NOTE
Copying the ISO Image BIOS file to CD will not work. The completed CD should
contain multiple files and a directory.

3. Insert the CD that was created in the CD-ROM drive of the computer to be
upgraded and boot the system.
4. When the "Press ENTER to continue booting from CD-ROM" prompt appears, press
the Enter key. The system will boot from the hard drive if no key is pressed within
15 seconds.
5. At the "Welcome to the Intel Desktop Board BIOS Upgrade CD-ROM" page, press
any key to confirm the BIOS upgrade operation.
6. Wait for the BIOS upgrade process to complete.

CAUTION
DO NOT POWER DOWN YOUR COMPUTER before the update is complete. The update
may take up to 5 minutes.

Updating the BIOS with Iflash


With the Iflash Memory update utility you can update the system BIOS from a
bootable CD-ROM, bootable USB flash drive, or other bootable USB media. The utility
available on the Intel World Wide Web site provides a simple method for creating a
bootable CD-ROM that will automatically update your BIOS. The Iflash BIOS update
files can also be extracted locally to your hard drive and copied to a bootable USB
flash drive or other bootable USB media.
The Iflash Memory update utility allows you to:
• Update the BIOS and Intel Management Engine in flash memory
• Update the language section of the BIOS

NOTE
Review the instructions distributed with the update utility before attempting a BIOS
update.

59
Intel Desktop Board D946GZIS Product Guide

CAUTION
Do not interrupt the process or the system may not function properly.

1. Uncompress the BIOS update file and copy the .BIO file, IFLASH.EXE, and .ITK file
(optional) to a bootable USB flash drive or other bootable USB media.
2. Configure the BIOS or use the F10 option during POST to boot to the USB device.
3. Manually run the IFLASH.EXE file from the USB device and manually update the
BIOS.

Recovering the BIOS


It is unlikely that anything will interrupt the BIOS update; however, if an interruption
occurs, the BIOS could be damaged. Due to BIOS size and recovery requirements, a
CD-R with the .BIO file in the root directory will be required. For more information
about recovering the BIOS for desktop board D946GZIS, go to:
http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/
